good morning from the studio 57 newsroom at cbs news headquarters in new york. thanks for joining us. i'm anne-marie green. this morning, the east coast of the united states is getting pounded with a steady diet of drenching, flood producing rain and this is not the worst of it. hurricane joaquin has formed into a category three hurricane. sustained winds of 120 miles per hour and higher gusts. joaquin is pounding the bahamas this morning, but expected to head north and likely hit somewhere on the u.s. coast this weekend. its impact is already being felt along the florida coast, though, where high waves are pounding the shore. in storm weary new jersey, residents are preparing for the worst. weijia jiang reports on the drenching east coast weather. >> reporter: heavy rain fell fast, flooding roads up and down the east coast on wednesday. in providence, rhode island, this car was no match for mother nature.
